We’re now limiting the number of characters for search terms in Recent Finds. This prevents searches like “Find me every map of China published in the 19th Century by foreign cartographers not related to my cousin Freddie” from uglying up the Recent Finds list.

You can type in longer search requests, of course, and your search will be based on whatever you type in — but only the first 25-30 characters will show up.

The number of searches kept visible has been capped at 50. Sponsored product displays will remain below the Recent Finds section for the time being.
